The same reason we got a 1st rounder for Corey Maggette.... teams love those expiring contracts.

We paid 13 Million dollars for the first rounder we got for Maggette.

The Pistons gave us a first round pick for agreeing to take on the additional 13 Million dollars on Ben Gordon's contract.

My question is why would the Bucks give away a first round pick and acquire Gordon..... They don't currently have Gordon so why would they want to take on his contract?

In order for us to receive Milwaukees first round pick and for us to send them Ben Gordon, the bucks would send us a contract worse than Ben Gordon's or they would have no incentive to make trade.

I guess what I'm trying to say is this:

Currently the Bucks have Cap Space

Cap Space is better than an expiring contract

The Bucks don't need Gordon's expiring contract because they have cap space.

15 is a low pick. Milwaukee may not like anyone enough at that spot. A Ben Gordon contract could help them a lot next year in free agency. They're not looking to create something this offseason.

A lot of people are saying the draft isn't bad, it's actually a pretty deep draft, where even in the second round there could be value.  The problem is it's very top-heavy and not very many sure top-3 picks.
